Therapy Dog

Dr. Tally

What is a working dog? I’m glad you asked! Therapy dogs are not usually called service dogs as they are not trained to physically assist individuals.

Additional Benefits

Carpenter House patients also benefit from additional interventions from our Masters level Interns and Practicum students.  We also offer a PTSD group and will be adding other groups as we grow.  Our therapists can be booked for workshops at your office or church.
